Hi all!
I'm really interested in the physical interpretation of the Riemann and metric tensors. Is there any program that lets you type in a Riemann or metric tensor (or even better, an Einstein tensor) and then gives you an image of how the space would look (i.e. the curved grid lines)?
Thanks!

Hi, with a rapid search I found this program SageManifolds, for differential geometry and tensor calculus but I discover it only now. On the website they say that the program has some plotting capabilities...
